"Assigned By" in Task Property

It would be nice to be able to see, specifically in the Task "board" view, who a task was assigned by. Was this a task I created for myself? Did a teammate create it for me? Was it auto-created? Did my boss assign it to me? This would also be helpful from a  management perspective to see if a user is utilizing tasks for themselves, replying on teammates to create them for them, and how auto-created tasks are being completed.

This seems like an oversight by HS in the Task feature and something that's desperately needed. If you leave someone a "Note" it is logged with "Note by {{first + last name}}...you could do so something similar for Tasks.

Yes, knowing who created (assigned) the task is crucial for tracking and accountability purposes. If anyone knows of a third-party app that handles this please post to this thread.

...I'm looking to do this as I've been asked by multiple people in different depts. I looked everywhere and I can't believe there is no "assigned by", there's an "assigned to" but cannot filter the other way round.

Very very essential feature. Would greatly improve the efficiency of the Task tool if added.

+1 this is crazy that this issue has been open for over two years.

This really would be very useful.... We keep getting told that more votes on ideas pushes these up to the front of the queue (or "line" as you say in the US). But it's frustrating to see that there's no progress here and no resolution in sight.

Please work on this asap.

Really basic functionality and often requested by our customers.

Thanks

Great idea! Much needed and would be super helpful.

It is very important and useful to be able to track who created tasks.

Please add this functionality as soon as possible.

I think this concept can also be extended to other forms of activity, such as tracking who created companies.

Hey @hubspot Just curious how upvotes will it take to implement such an obvious filter 😄 

Asking for a friend!

TOTALLY agreed - I am in IT for a huge company in South Africa (Seeff), with 100s of staff & NOT being able to sort by who 'created or assigned' the task is crazy! Please sort this ASAP: THANK YOU!

I could not agree more, the ability to investigate task allocation is vital to understanding what is delegating to whom and why.
